Did you know that New York ranks 50th out of 50 states (down from 49th in 2013) with regard to the percentage of residents registered as organ donors?
Every year, 10,0000 people waiting for organ transplants must rely on an available pool of around 220 organ donors. Every 18 hours, another New Yorker is added to the organ donor wait list.
We’re committed to helping New Yorkers find the perfect home. And now, we’re working to help save thousands of lives right here in NYC with a bold new initiative called Lease on Life.
